Jira Automation: checking two field values against each-other

Hello there,


I have one jira custom field that contains 1 value (from a selection list)

For example field1 = "A1" (from a selection list of "A1,A2,A3")


I have a second custom field field2 where i put in some (default) values like "A1,B1,C1,D1,E1" 


Now i want to check if field1 value is one of the values in field2


Is this possible? How?

Can it be done in a JQL query and/or in a automation-rule? How?


Any help will be very appreciated!

Hi Maurice,

You should be able to do that with the Scheduled trigger in Automation For Jira.

You can have it run once a day or more often and email you the results. 

Use the Advanced Compare Condition to compare the two fields.

Hey @Maurice Stassen

Here's how you'd use the advanced compare condition:
